The Nemechek Protocol™ for Healing Autism and Gut Issues
Above is a video from October 2017 about my and my son's experience with the Nemechek Protocol™. If you'd like to fast forward to September 2018, check out my Nemechek Protocol - One Year Later post.
A friend asked me for links to the specific products recommended in the protocol.
So, without further ado, here they are. If you substitute products, you are not on the protocol. So stick with the tried and true products below.

Here are the items recommended by Dr. Nemechek in his book as part of the protocol. If you substitute products, you are not on the protocol. So stick with the tried and true products below.
People have asked how to measure tiny amounts of inulin as you begin the protocol.
You can get tiny measuring spoons on amazon.
To start, remove these things from the diet:
- Omega-6 oils (sunflower oil, safflower oil, soy oil, peanut oil, "vegetable" oil, "vegetable" shortening)
- Probiotic supplements (yogurt, sauerkraut, kombucha, and kefir are fine)
And ADD these 3 things:
NOW brand Inulin powder (start with 1/8 tsp or less, working way up to 1/2 tsp over time)
DHA-500 or Nordic Naturals Omega-3 (Do NOT use any other brands)
Now Brand DHA-500 (Adults should take 3000 mg DHA, kids should take less - see dosage recommendations from the book below)
Nordic Naturals Ultimate Omega Liquid or Capsules (or the fish oil gummies for young kiddos)
Real, certified extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
Recently, California Olive Ranch has switched to a Destination Series, which is NOT COOC certified.
If you can get olive oil from a local olive farm, do that! If not, here are some COOC certified oils you can purchase online. The fresher the oil, the better. You want the oil to be pressed within 18 months of using it. DO NOT buy Olive Oil in a plastic bottle. It loses its health-promoting properties when stored in plastic.
Kirkland California Olive Oil
Cobram Estate 100% California Select Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Inulin - start with a tiny amount (1/8 tsp or .63 ml) and work up to 1/2 tsp per day
Olive Oil - start with 1 Tbsp (15 ml) and cook everything in it, working up to 2 or more TBSP
Omega-3 Oil (Total of EPA+DHA): dosage goes by age of person
- 0-6 Months Old: 150 mg daily
- 7-12 Months Old: 300-450 mg daily
- 1-5 Years Old: 450-600 mg daily
- 5-7 Years Old: 600-1000 mg daily
- 8-10 Years Old: 1000-1500 mg daily
- 11-14 Years Old: 1500-2000 mg daily
- 15-18 Years Old: 2000 - 3500 mg daily
If you're older than 18 years old, you need AT LEAST 3000 mg daily of DHA.
